The Wei Wai Kum First Nation is governed by a Council made up of one Chief Councillor and one Councillor for every full 100 members – to a maximum of 10 councillors. Currently, there are eight positions on the Council.
The purpose of Council is to provide for the needs of the community with the spirit and intent to provide fair, accountable and transparent leadership. Council will work to deliver effective and efficient programs and services that improve the well-being of the membership. Council is expected to engage in economic development that will secure a healthy, prosperous future for the Nation, while respecting its culture and traditions.
The Band Manager is responsible for overseeing staff members and the day-to-day administration of programs and services provided to and for members of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation.
A Wei Wai Kum Governance Manual has been developed to describe the political, functional and legal roles and responsibilities of Council, the Band Manager, and staff members. It also defines operational procedures to ensure and promote good governance.
